Chris White is Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on St Albans Council and has been a Hertfordshire county councillor since 1993. He has built a reputation as a formidable campaigner.

1. Chris is a local and experienced councillor who was a member of the Police Authority for seven years

Chris has extensive experience of working on policing issues in his local community and was formerly chair of the Hertfordshire Police Authority Audit Committee.

Neighbourhood crimes like burglary, theft and drug dealing remain - and require Neighbourhood Policing to tackle it.

He wants closer co-operation between the Constabulary and Trading Standards, the DWP and HMRC.

3. Chris has a good grasp of finance and was formerly the Chair of the Police Authority's Audit Committee

Chris qualified as a chartered accountant in 1984 and has worked in accountancy, accountancy training and public affairs. He was a member of the Board of the Audit Commission from 2005 to 2011 and is currently Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on the Local Government Association.
